Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was on “The Kelly File” last night to respond to Obama’s speech earlier in the evening on his “strategy” on dealing with Islam. One of Obama’s most glaring lies during the speech was the claim that ISIS (Islamic State) is neither Islamic nor a state – and that no religion condones the killing of innocents.

Barak Barfi, a research fellow at the New America Foundation and a representative for the family of beheaded journalist Steven Sotloff, dropped a bombshell on Monday on CNN. Barfi says that the ISIS killers operating in Syria paid for Sotloff so they could hold him and eventually cut off his head.
Has there ever been a more vile and repugnant regime than the gang of bloated potentates that rules Saudi Arabia? New examination of this contemptible criminal enterprise the West bows to.
Very few on Capitol Hill are willing to confirm the reality that the current policy of overthrowing secular governments in the Middle East and hoping for an Islamic democratic outcome is foolish. Senator Rand Paul stood alone warning against arming rebels, because it could destabilize the region
President Barack Obama nominated on July 28 as Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Rabbi David Saperstein, who would be the first non-Christian to hold this post created in 1998 upon Senate confirmation. Saperstein’s longstanding leftist views aligned with the Obama Administration, though, raise questions about his ability to defend religious freedom increasingly under global assault from politically correct causes.
The Government Accounting Office (GAO) issued a report yesterday declaring that the Pentagon broke two laws when it participated in the trade of five top Taliban commanders for a U.S. Army deserter named Bowe Bergdahl. The report stated that the Pentagon had ignored language in a law that is “clear and unambiguous” about how prisoner exchanges are to be handled.
A long time Democrat, Kirsten Powers, urges President Obama to end the deafening silence and callousness towards the genocide of the Christian community in Iraq. Powers, formerly an official in the Clinton administration, is now an on-air personality on Fox News, representing a liberal point of view. Like many in Congress and in the general American population, she cannot understand why the plight of the Yazidis so quickly provoked a response from the President, when the much larger population of Christians has suffered greater brutality for months, in the face of total silence and apathy on the part of the President.
“If there is one thing as surprising as the obliviousness of this President, it is the totality of that obliviousness. Truly, it seems as if there is no threat that has not managed to catch him utterly off-guard. And the sad reality is that his consistent inability to anticipate obvious danger has almost invariably led to the loss of innocent life on an massive and heartbreaking scale.
Two American aid flights have also made it to the mountain, where they have dropped off more than 36,000 meals and 7,000 gallons of drinking water to help the refugees, and last night two RAF C-130 transport planes were also on the way. However, Iraqi officials said that much of the US aid had been “useless” because it was dropped from 15,000ft without parachutes and exploded on impact.
ISIL militants have published video footage of executions, while fighters were also seen pulling down church crosses and burning manuscripts, as part of their self declared campaign to establish a strict Islamic state in areas of Iraq and Syria. “At least 200,000 Christians are now thought to be fleeing towards the Iraqi Kurdistan region,” said aid group Barnabas Fund, which supports Christians in heavily Islamic nations. “Some of the displaced had already fled to the Nineveh plain from Mosul” which was taken by ISIL on June 10, Barnabas Fund told BosNewsLife.
